RAVENS RUMORS & GOSSIP

Report: Roger Goodell will have to testify in Ray Rice case

If NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell had hopes to remain out of the Ray Rice appeal, which is set for early next month, those hopes have reportedly been thrown out the window.

Torrey Smith increasing his role in Baltimore offense? (AFC North touches and targets)

Touches and Targets Week 7: Baltimore Ravens A week ago in this space, I suggested that Bernard Pierce’s role ahead of Lorenzo Taliaferro was a product of game flow with the Ravens throttling the Bucs. I was mistaken. While this game wound up as a throttling as well, Pierce was the second back on the field and saw action on 17 snaps, compared to just five for the rookie. He carried...

Is Matt Elam a bust? The Ravens snap counts at safety say… something

The Ravens first-round pick from the 2013 draft may not be panning out. Or, the Ravens third-round pick from 2014 is really panning out, and their free agent signing of a talented, yet troubled safety could only be beginning to pay off. Or it’s some combination of all three.  In any event, Matt Elam is not playing as much, and Terrence Brooks and Will Hill are the culprits. Check...

The Baltimore Ravens have reclaimed their elite NFL status

Remember those 2010 and 2011 Baltimore Ravens? 12-4 records, no AFC title win? What about the 10-6 squad in 2012 that did win the Super Bowl? They may be easy to forget after a disappointing 8-8, non-playoff season in 2013. But that’s in the past. The Baltimore Ravens are now an elite team in the AFC. A 5-2 record is impressive. The defense is dangerous again, the team has put...

Steve Smith quit Twitter to set better example for his kids

Baltimore Ravens WR Steve Smith is never at a loss for words and has provided us with many excellent soundbites during the course of his 14-year career. After torching his former team for 139 yards and two touchdowns in a 38-10 victory a few weeks ago, he told the Panthers to "mow his lawn" and said he ran around defenders "like they were schoolyard kids."...
